Assessment Arrangements For Junior Cycle and Leaving Certificate Examinations 2022

This updated document (August 2021) sets out the adjusted assessment arrangements for post-primary students taking certificate examinations in the 2021/22 school year. These arrangements are designed to take account of the disrupted learning experienced by students during the Covid-19 pandemic. The adjustments have been arrived at through discussions between the Department of Education (DE), the State Examinations Commission (SEC) and the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) and key stakeholders.
